The death penalty should stay because we need it. If someone commits a crime they should take full responsibility for their actions. We do not need to keep them in jail. If they stayed in jail then they are still alive and someone innocent had to die because of their actions.
She practically raises both Bailey and Marguerite. The nickname “Momma” is very unusual for a grandmother. It shows how much of a mother figure she is to Bailey and Marguerite and to pretty much everyone in Stamps. This shows through everything she does. When the town was going through the depression she made trade available and kept her shop alive and in turn her family and the town survived.
Everyone has a different meaning and purpose in their life. Fleming addresses her pure meaning to life throughout the last three stanzas (L: 33 to 44). Fleming loves reaching out to people and helping them, especially in her job as a social worker. The lines stating, "And how much I shared/ Of my soul and my heart" gave Flemings full emotions of her work. These lines had the full meaning that she poured her heart and soul into her job and life overall.
Her greatest achievement, out of her numerous collection, is the legacy she leaves behind and various examples set for her children and husband. Even though she lived a hard life of servitude, she still remained loving and never adverted away from her family. O-Lan remained selfless and loyal to her family although it is never truly appreciated until after she is gone. O-Lan’s greatest desire was to be noticed and wanted by others, especially those she slaved away most of her life to so altruistically. Sadly, her wish doesn’t really come true until after her untimely death.
She lost the life she had when she was a young girl but she found the life she wanted even after all the tragedies she had to go through. Even after the war and all the hardships she had to go through to survive she still found happiness. “All But My Life” had so many great things to say about life, hope, and how to keep on going even though everything inside of you doesn’t want to.
One should do what is best at the patient’s request for humane, quick and painless dimes.” The above statement said by Dr. Jack is very true, as keeping people alive who are starving to death is inhumane. And what is the necessity to keep them alive against their wish though they had tolerated it since long and no improvements are resulted. The person suffering from this condition and his family members both have to suffer. Even their family members would wish that he might be relieved from this pain as they also cannot see their beloved ones suffering.
We must not convict Meredith. Jury, if Meredith McCartney is convicted of the death penalty, good luck going to bed at night! Good luck because the thought of convicting an innocent woman to death will remain in your head. It is our time to change now; make the world understand that for every wrong action there will be a punishment. Meredith is innocent; the punishment must go to the real criminal.
Some people believe that a life sentence is worse than the death penalty, since it prevents the defendant from being considered a human being. Likewise Andy Martin says in his article, “In my imaginary trial of the future, the judge will not be “sentencing” at all. Or rather she will be uttering a sentence, but it is not a declarative assertion. There is no “the prisoner will be taken hence and thence conveyed etc.” It is an interrogative.
Everyone feels the pain of loss the same. We both know that pain. Some are working for their justice. We are just ordinary people driven to revenge in the name of justice. But if revenge is called justice, then that justice breeds yet more revenge.
The figurative language used in “Lucinda Matlock” is mainly parallelism, which, as used in this poem, helps emphasize to the audience a main point of the poem. The speaker tells what she did with her life after facing great tragedy when she says “I spun, I wove, I kept the house, I nursed the sick,/I made the garden” (10-11). The usage of parallelism with starting every statement with “I” makes it noticeable to the audience what the speaker wants them to know: she continues on with her life and remains content even after persevering through hard times. The third poem, “Mrs. George Reece”, uses an allusion to develop the idea of happiness after hard times. In the last line of the poem, the speaker makes a point that the audience should “Act well your part, there all the honor lies” (14), a quote by the poet Alexander Pope.
Our conversation continued and by the end, I felt a connection to Samantha, who willingly opened up about one of the lowest points in her life to an absolute stranger. Unlike most people, Samantha maintained a resolve and purpose to her life; she devoted herself to serving others because she experienced firsthand the horrors of being a female inmate in the failing prison system. If she prevented one person from suffering the pain she endured, all of her devotion to this cause was
For example, it is for the public good and safety to put people to sleep if they are a serial murderer, so that they do not hurt any more people. Adding on, popular terrorists have caused many problems and deaths, that nothing could be paid to make the families of the lost ones feel better. The eighth
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
In her poem, Linda Hogan describes her memory and feeling about her family. She explores the complexity of her heritage in the poem. According to Linda Hogan, she got her face and body forms from her mother, "I watch my face take on her lines" and "she left the large white breasts"; from he father she got brown eyes, "I take his brown eyes"; from her grandparents she learned to be quiet and to respect and to believe in Indian traditions, "I learned to kill a snake when you're begging for rain", "to eat the flesh of deer so you will be swift and travel over many miles. " The Chickasaws were a nomadic tribe who were always on the move, so Linda inherited from this tribe to follow in the stick's directions, "tribe has always followed a stick that
